Ready or Not (Doomsday talk in San Francisco, June 2012)

Jamais Cascio @ "BAASICS.2:The Future" from Selene Foster on Vimeo.

This past June, I spoke at an event in San Francisco for a group called "BAASICS" (Bay Area Art & Science Interactive Collaborative Sessions). My talk -- on the end of the world, and why it matters -- was fairly brief (under 12 minutes), but reasonably fun. The HD video of the talk is now available at Vimeo, as well as embedded above.

Highlights include old favorites the Eschatological Taxonomy, Legacy Futures, and the Singularity!

And, as always, weird poses and gestures.

Likely title: "Come at me, Bro, I've got a targeted nano-plague!"

All comments go through moderation, so if it doesn't show up immediately, I'm not available to click the "okiedoke" button. Comments telling me that global warming isn't real, that evolution isn't real, that I really need to follow [insert religion here], that the world is flat, or similar bits of inanity are more likely to be deleted than approved. Yes, it's unfair. Deal. It's my blog, I make the rules, and I really don't have time to hand-hold people unwilling to face reality.
